    Remove/Replace transmission filter without changing fluid JD 2305

    I must have hit a few things with my hydraulic filter on the bottom of my 2305 (who though that was a good place for a filter?), and I have a Class I leak (drop or two a day) from the filter. I still have another 100+ hours before having to change the transmission fluid.

    Question:

    If I pull the filter to change it, will all of the fluid spill out?

    What about if I use the FEL to jack the front end up pretty good while doing this?

    Any thoughts are welcome.

    I was told by the dealer I can replace the filter on a 1 series without draining the fluid. I am not sure if the setup is the same on the 2. I am interested as I figured the same thing can happen to mine.

    I have no idea....

    But I suggest you might want to be ready with a large catch pan just in case. Let us know what you find.

    Good advice Diesel. I use a catch pan whenever I remove filter just in case. If your filter is straight horizontal you will need something under it to catch at least a little so you may as well be prepared if you need to catch more.

    Even taking the the precautions of a catch pan, I am still fully capable of making a mess. My wife lets me know it all the time.


    I don't remember being this way when I was younger. Could be I am remembering less and less nowadays!

    The 2305 transmission filter looks like it is only a couple inches above the drain plug. You would probably have to stand the tractor on its back wheels to avoid fluid coming out.

    If it were me, I would simply do an early transmission service and then resume the 200 hour interval. Otherwise you're going to be throwing the filter away early at the next interval.

    Alternatively, like Diesel suggested, have a catch pan ready and be prepared to add some back in.

    FYI I brought a shield for that filter on ebay, after I put a good dent in mine. Not sure if still available, made by inventive...I am about to change the filter out but if going that far am going to do fluid and screen as well. second time to be done on tractor and I only have 150 hrs on it. But this year is 5 year anniversary, so going to change all fluids and filters.

    Sounds like a good idea on the guard. I may look into something for my 1 series. It is not an issue on my larger tractors (BTW they are not JD). I would change the fluid and clean the screen like you also. I know there is still enough residual debris in my system from the original build to warrant it even though I did the 50 hr change. I am at 93 hours now and plan on another system clean out at about 150 hours.

    If you can, would you be able to pull the filter before draining and let us know how much fluid spills?

    Do you have any more info on that shield? Sounds like a great idea. I looked on ebay for filter shields and found nothing.
